located in the BAY OF MONT ST MICHELE
(you can see the mont from the pony field behind the house).

we are on the outskirts of a village(its got a bar though!) we are surounded by small quiet lanes & tracks, we ride out either on horseback or bicycle sometimes a short ride, sometimes a few hours, or take the dogs for a walk........we have 6 !

I am semi disabled, in order to enjoy my horses & dogs while i still can i need help around the farm & house, i get tired quicker than i used to & i am not as strong, my energy levels can sometimes be low & i just have to stop.

this is why I am looking for an extra hand or more to pitch in for general help around the house or farm & with the animals, flexible as to hours etc but must be non smoker.

we offer accomodation in a spare bedroom with bunk beds & a single sleeping up to 3 (4 at a push)

i moved here in my 2013, since it was not used as a farm for some time i am in the process of making it more animal & horse friendly & adding a small vegetable garden if i get some help!

i need help as i have a degenerative spinal condition & i have had serious spinal neuro surgery on my neck & in the future i can't do most of the heavy work, & to be 100% honest house work has been sidelined because with winter coming up fast some jobs for the animals just couldn't wait & i have to prioratise my limited energy & so the general maintainance of the land & the care of the animals comes 1st,

if anyone has horse experience i have 2 rescued horses & 3 ponies & 1 donkey ready to ride or train on with whom i could do with a hand or 2!

myself & my teenage sons live alongside our horses, goat, geese, ducks, chickens, cats & dogs, if you DON'T like snuggling up on a sofa with snoring dogs & purring cats...you won't like us.
recent works we have done inc building of animal shelters & improving the fencing.

future projects inc :- improvements to the animal housing, & to make raised veg beds.

i don't expect helpers to work 24/7 but it would be nice if they could agree with me in advance what hours/days they want to work to avoid confusion.

we are about 7 kilometers from town, so night life is TV, watch the night stars or make your own, but trips/nights out can be arranged as we have a small minibus & Mont St Michele & the normandy beaches are good.
see you soon?

P.S the phone is having problems so if you cannot get through send an email instead, thanks bye
